On a side note, how is it possible to score on a guy that doesn't really have to move to cover the net?
Has anyone in the history of hockey ever tried throwing a Sumo-sized goalie in nets?

Legit question.

This gets asked at least once every couple of months on the main board.

6'7? Easy. Shoot under his arm, and above his pad. A goal everytime.

Good thing I don't go to the main boards, then!

2 Legit 2 Quit.

The Capitals did an experiment with it. Once shooters figured it out, it was easy pickens.

Bishop makes the net look like a plastic red road hockey net that we all used to play with when we were younger. His size is just ridiculous. He's going to be the Zdeno Chara of goalies and be a total beast. The knock on most tall goalies in their lack of movement, well Bishop is pretty strong there. Expect him to make an impact right away!

I saw a video on Youtube about that... I can't remember the name but it wasn't great... The "elite hockey player" was George Parros
